Galaxy Travel To Houston This Weekend For First Away Game Of 2010

Following their two-goal win over Chivas USA in last Thursday’s Honda
SuperClasico, the Galaxy travel to Texas this weekend to face the Houston Dynamo
on Saturday, April 10 at 5:30 p.m PT at Robertson Stadium. The Galaxy comes into
the Houston game having won its first two games
of the season, including 1-0 and 2-0 wins over New England and Chivas USA,
respectively. Forward Edson Buddle, who scored both goals in Thursday’s win, has
scored all three goals of the club’s goals this season while goalkeeper Donovan
Ricketts is anchoring a defense that has posted back-to-back
shutouts.

Saturday’s game is a rematch of
last year’s thrilling Western Conference Championship played in November at The
Home Depot Center, which LA won 2-0 in overtime. The Galaxy are 3-4-4 all-time
against the Dynamo in the regular season, 2-2-2 in games played in Houston. Last season, the
club went 1-0-1 in the two regular season matches against the Dynamo, including
last year’s 0-0 draw at Robertson Stadium.

The game will be broadcast on
tape-delay at 10 p.m. on FS West and MLS Direct Kick package. Additionally, the
game can be heard locally in English on KTLK 1150 AM and in Spanish on ESPN
Deportes Radio 1330 AM. Both broadcasts start at 5:00 p.m. with their respective

TEAM
NOTES

LOOKING FOR
THREE…:
On Saturday, the Galaxy will look
to start the season with three consecutive wins for just the third time in club
history. This is the first time the Galaxy has started a campaign, 2-0, since
2002. The last time the LA started with a record of 3-0 was 1998, when the club
rattled off nine wins to begin the season. The club’s longest winning streak to
start a season is 12, set during the inaugural season of 1996. However, both win
streaks included shootout wins.
